The campaign for director Basil Joseph’s new Malayalam superhero thriller, Minnal Murali, has been a light-hearted affair up to this point since Netflix proceeded its September announcement with a first trailer back in October. A new trailer is currently making the rounds though, and it definitely emulates something much darker, serious and supernatural to its imagery. I reckon this should balance things out enough to cover the bases some.
Set in the 90s, Minnal Murali is an origin story of an ordinary man-turned-superhero Murali, who is struck by a bolt of lightning, which bestows him with special powers.
Minnal Murali is produced by Weekend Blockbusters (Sophia Paul), and stars Tovino Thomas in the title role, along with Guru Somasundaram, Harisree Ashokan and Aju Varghese, and will stream worldwide on December 24.
